January 2017 Design Team Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hey & Happy New Year!

It’s the 11th of the month, which means as it is not a release month (sorry, I promise it’ll be worth the wait till next month) the Design Team and I are here today with the usual Design Team Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY!

This month we have decided to dust off and revisit the previously released Beautiful Blooms I clear stamp set AND matching Designer Dies.

This clear stamp set was released way back in June 2013 but is still a firm favourite of mine and many 😉 The set also has a Pinterest page HERE, in which you can find lots of inspiration using it.

Here’s what I have created to share with you today…

If you saw my CAS Colours & Sketches card HERE yesterday, you will have read me talking about the Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Mist and how I wanted to try a finer spray compared to the splatter effect I got on my first card. Well, I gave it a go with a Mini Mister.

Again, I foiled the mist with the Rose Gold foil. The layout of my card is inspired by the soon to be ending CAS(E) this Sketch! sketch seen HERE and below.


I used the MISTI to stamp the large die cut bloom and leaves. I wish that I had chosen a white card base to mount the foiled panel and bold black bloom. The beauty of hindsight and trying things before I adhere them permanently! Anyway, what is done is done and I need quite a few thank you cards to send post Christmas so I am sure I may make more 😉

I was hoping to have another card to share, but my mojo just wasn’t letting me. Every idea I had just wasn’t coming out right 🙁 I think tiredness had started to kick in, with all the early mornings with the beans and late nights working are starting to take their toll a little. Roll on Thursday afternoon for a few hours bean free 😉

Anyway, how about some more inspiration using this set AND don’t forget to comment along the Design Team blogs to be in the chance of winning BOTH the Beautiful Blooms I clear stamp set and the matching Designer Dies. Or a Gift Certificate to the same value if you already own them. You have until Midnight GMT Friday 20th january to get your comments in.
